2009 Little League World Series

Have you been watching the Little League World Series?  We have!  Our local Chula Vista team  Parkview Little League won today versus the only team that had beaten them in the tournament - San Antonio, Texas.  The earlier loss (3-6) was forgotten as Parkview ended the US Championship Game early by the mercy rule, 12-2.

I saw some of my friends on the tube when the cameras panned the audience.  Jess was at a football game so I was sending updates to her via text as they happened. She would then tell the rest of the parents at the game.

Now, Parkview will face Chinese Taipei in the the Little League World Series Championship game at Noon Pacific time tomorrow.  We're having a little carne asada and munchies at our game get together to cheer the team on.  :)

On a side note, has anyone noticed that of the 16 teams in the LLWS that eight are from the United States?  And that the United States (1 of the 8 teams) gets an automatic berth into the Championship Game to face the International Champion?  Doesn't it seem like this is a United States versus the World tournament?
